Sundays After Trinity: The Divine Mercy

237. When all thy mercies, O my God

C.M.

Tallis' Ordinal:

Thomas Tallis, 1567

Joseph Addison, 1712;

Abbr.

When all thy mercies, O my God,

My rising soul surveys,

Transported with the view, I'm lost

In wonder, love, and praise.

O how shall words with equal warmth

The gratitude declare,

That glows within my ravished heart?

But thou canst read it there.

Ten thousand thousand precious gifts

My daily thanks employ;

Nor is the least a cheerful heart,

That tastes those gifts with joy.

Through every period of my life

Thy goodness I'll pursue;

And after death, in distant worlds,

The glorious theme renew.

When nature fails, and day and night

Divide thy works no more,

My ever grateful heart, O Lord,

Thy mercy shall adore.

Through all eternity, to thee

A joyful song I'll raise;

But O eternity's too short

To utter all thy praise!

Amen.
